2003 dodge Dakota engine hesitates and backfires around 40mph

Asked by Sep 11, 2019 at 10:47 AM about the 2003 Dodge Dakota 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

First off, I have trouble codes 0442 and 0445, the issues
started when these came up. My issue is the truck starts
fine  but when driving short distances and right around 40
mph it will start choking out like it's not getting fuel,
backfires once or twice so I'll put in neutral shut off, turn
back on and drives fine from there. I've changed your
typical plugs and wires,  IAC, crank sensor,  purge solenoid,  
charcoal canister, gas cap.... was thinking I would try
coolant temp sensor and map sensor,  any suggestions?
